Same meal, different price: How to navigate food-delivery apps—and do right by the driver and restaurant

Tales of two Atlanta food delivery drivers
"I work full-time for a builder, selling houses. In the evenings, Monday through Friday, I clean offices and then do Postmates. On the weekends, I manage my own business and do delivery. I have a lot more time to work because I don’t get to do the socializing that I would typically do." - Kimberly Smith (Postmates, DoorDash)
